Today's youth are in a very competitive environment. Every move they make can be viewed by their peers via social media, cell phones etc. What has not changed, however, is the need for feel special and have an opportunity to express your thoughts, feelings, talents and skills.

Courageous Queens and Kings sessions allows youth to express themselves without worry that someone will judge them. Family Learning Solutions also provides talent exhibit/showcases to allow individual expression without judgement.
